2000 Outlook

If Coach Snyder can find the starter he is looking for at quarterback by September and if running back Josh Scobey is as good as advertised, the Cats could be primed for a title run, and not just the Big 12. David Allen is flat out the best punt and kick-off returner in all of college football. On the other side of the ball, passing against the Cats might not be advised with so many starters returning. The ability to stop the run will test KSU in the conference. The stregth of schedule should increase some with trips to College Station and Boulder on the list. But the non-conference opponents still leave alot of pollsters scratching their head. Looks iminant that two unbeatens will face off on November 11th as Nebraska invades Manhattan. One loss regular seasons are common ground and somthing to be proud of. Projected record: 12-1

Strengths: The Wildcat offense was a big play unit in 1999 with quick strike ability. Wide receivers Aaron Lockett and Quincy Morgan are the heartbeat of the big play passing attack that averaged nearly 20 yards per completion. Lockett is a speed burner and Morgan excels in yards after catch. Brandon Clark comes off of a foot injury and could add another tall target if he stays healthy. The running game looks to be shared by David Allen and JUCO transfer Josh Scobey in 2000. David was very effective and the coaches are very high on Scobey who was a JUCO All-American and he will get a shot to win the job. If he does look for David Allen to focus on third downs and kick returns. Allen already shares the NCAA career record for punt returns for touchdowns with 7 and is primed to break the record for all time punt returner yardage. QB Jonathon Beasley will be back and healthy after an up and down 1999. The offensive line will be deep. Seven players rotated last year and four are back in addition to several players who have the talent and just need playing time. Tight ends Shad Meier and Nick Warren are solid.
Weaknesses: The weaknesses of the offense are the unknown commodities in the backfield. While they will have a solid line and great speed outside, the play of the QB and RB will determine if K-State makes another run at the Big 12 and national titles. Jonathon Beasley was not consistent in his accuracy which sometimes left the defense on the field alot. Ell Roberson III was rumored to have won the job last year prior to an injury. Jonathon has the experience edge, but Ell has the legs and arm that have drawn comparisons to Michael Bishop. The battle may not be decided until September. At running back, the burst of Frank Murphy and the sheer size of Joe Hall, who is struggling with grades, will be missed

Strengths: Phil Bennett's troops enter their second season under his command with a firm grasp of his scheme, and tons of speed to make it work. The front four will be stronger up the middle with both Fatafehi and Holloman back on the inside and lots of depth at the end positions. Monty Beisel and bull rush specialist Chris Johnson will start. Ben Leber returns from '99 at the linebacker spot and may play some outside and also in the middle to make room for others. The secondary will be especially deep. Both corners, Carter and Butler, return as does all conference performer Jarrod Cooper at strong safety. Not only are they all back, so are all their back-ups. In the special teams department hopes are new punter Jared Brite can average anywhere near the 45 yards he averaged in high school.
Weaknesses: Who will make the big plays? Who will make the key sack, force the fumble, or pick off the pass? For four seasons the answer to those questions were usually either Darren Howard, Mark Simoneau, or Lamar Chapman. With those three off in the NFL, some of the young talent on KSU's defense are going to have to step up and fill the leadership and big play void they leave behind. Only one returning linebacker will fill the chart in 2000 so spring will be very important in determining a starting linebacking crew.
